| Last updated
Jack Wilshere will not be the highest-earning player at Danish top-flight side Aarhus Gymnastikforening, according to reports.
It was confirmed on Sunday that the former Arsenal, West Ham and Bournemouth midfielder has signed for AGF on a deal until the end of the season - with the possibility of extending his time at Ceres Park for one more year.
He will start training with the squad on Monday as they prepare for an away game against Vejle Boldklub on Friday.

Since the news was announced, reports have since emerged that Wilshere will earn £5,000-per-week before bonuses at Aarus.
That's according to The Sun, who claim the club's top earner is Frederik Tingager, a defender that is said to pick up around £6,700-per-week.
AGF captain Patrick Mortensen, meanwhile, is also believed to take home more than former England international Wilshere. The ex Brøndby and Lyngby striker picks up £5,700-a-week.

Wilshere has stated he is "very grateful" for the opportunity AGF have offered him after struggling to find a club in recent months.
"Since I started training with Arsenal, I have never hidden the fact that it was to be ready for 2022 and for a new club," he told AGF's official website. "Now the right club is here, and it will be an exciting new challenge for me.
"I am in a place in my career where I need to get started again after a difficult period and that opportunity has AGF offered me. For that I am very grateful, and I will do everything I can to live up to the expectations.
Wilshere added: "I am very much looking forward to contributing to the team. I'm physically in really good shape and I feel fit, so now for me it's about getting into the squad and see if I can earn some playing time for the club and contribute to get some wins."

Will never forget when he showed up the likes of Xavi, Iniesta and Busquets at the Emirates at the age of 19 🤩
Stig Inge Bjørnebye, who is the football director at AGF, is delighted to get the deal over the line.
"He is in good physical shape, but obviously lacks some game fitness," he said. "But that will soon come, and we look forward to seeing him in the white jersey, when he has settled in."
It is great to see Wilshere back in club football again. Let's hope he can push on and impress in the Danish Superliga.
